National Association of Christian Financial Consultants Announces 2019 Annual Conference
‘BRIghten Your Practice’ Conference July 17-20 in Charlotte Will Equip Professionals to Light Up Their Practices, Grow Their Businesses and Help Clients Honor God with Their Resources
ORLANDO, Fla.—The National Association of Christian Financial Consultants (NACFC, www.nacfc.org) will host its annual conference for professionals in the field next month.
With the 2019 theme of “BRIghten Your Practice,” the four-day event will equip planners and consultants to learn more about and be fully committed to Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI), as well as help their clients honor God with their resources.
Set for July 17-20 at the Renaissance Charlotte Suites Hotel in Charlotte, North Carolina, the NACFC conference will provide participants with the education, tools and marketing opportunities to light up their practices and help grow their businesses through live broadcasts, sessions to renew the spirit, new programs about Insurance Stewardship, continuing education through the Christian Financial Consultant and Advisor (CFCA) University and methods for attendees to create professional videos and radio programs.
“As more and more Christians become aware of the impact their God-given resources make in our culture, it is vitally important that financial consultants are equipped and passionate about Biblically Responsible Investing and are motivated to serve their clients to help them honor the Lord in every aspect of their lives,” said NACFC president and co-founder Mark Minnella.
Minnella designed the first faith-based professional designation program, Christian Financial Consultant and Advisor, in the industry. He served on the board of directors for Timothy Plan, the first mutual funds family to screen for biblical values. Minnella’s extensive background as a leader in the faith-based investment movement brings valuable guidance and discernment to the portfolio management offered through Integrity Investors, LLC, which he also founded and leads. As host of the “More than Money” radio show, he has been the voice of Biblically Responsible Investing on Christian radio for over 15 years. Minnella is also the author of “The Wall Street Awakening.”
Besides Minnella, speakers at the conference include: Timothy Plan founder, president and CEO Art Ally; pastor and mental health counselor Dan Marcone; Eventide Funds director of distribution Harry Nelson; founder and president of Creative Financial Design Mick Owens; founder and president of GA Repple & Company Glenn Repple; and former Walk Thru the Bible seminar instructor, chaplain of the Atlanta Braves and founder/president of Winning with Encouragement Ministries Walt Wiley.
An excursion to the Billy Graham Library is also planned for Thursday, July 18, at noon. For more information on the conference, including breakout sessions, registration, lodging and a downloadable schedule, visit nacfc.org/annual-conference-2019.
The mission of the National Association of Christian Financial Consultants is to teach, train and encourage financial professionals to learn, share and instruct biblical stewardship to individuals and families believing that “it profits a man nothing to gain the whole world and lose his soul” (Matthew 16:26). Members will glorify God by impacting their world for Jesus Christ through teaching and practicing biblical stewardship.
